This leucopermum has only one flower (right side 3:00 in the picture) faint color, end of bloom. The plant has many buds only one has bloomed. Wondering how to help it bloom better and thrive in our yard. We have one on the bank that has done much better. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Doug. The plant seems to have dried out some time back. Dig some 7cm holes under the canopy to see what you can see. You need to apply a soil wetting agent, but I have no idea if they sell them in San Diego. Don
